Community Engagement Policy

Community engagement is an umbrella phrase that includes information, consultation, engagement and empowering activities. It can be said that it is at the heart of what a council is designed to do.

It supports public involvement in Council decision-making, relationship building and community strengthening and is successfully implemented when the community is and feels part of the process. Done well it ensures integrity and builds trust in Council processes.

This policy is Council’s commitment to the community on the principles and values that guide our community engagement.
